David Copperfield Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Naming your dog is a task that will really test your creativity; you naturally would want to pick a name that is not only special but also has a great background story to it. There are plenty of reasons why you would choose a certain name. One of the most obvious reasons behind choosing a name is simply because of your personal preference. Do you have a favorite movie or television show? Is there an author that you absolutely love? Or maybe there is a famous pooch that you’d like to name your dog after? These are some of the questions that you need to answer in order to come up with a choice.

One of the things that you should avoid when choosing a dog name is a fleeting trend. Nowadays, it is very easy for something to become a “trend”, especially with the age of the internet and social media. However, you need to determine if it is a trend that has the potential to stand the test of time or one that will simply pass. If it is the latter, then it is probably not a good idea to choose it as a dog name. 

Instead, you should go for timeless references. Iconic literary works, authors, classic movies and television shows are just some of the possible inspirations that you can draw from. For instance, Dickens’ David Copperfield is filled with plenty of notable characters and references which would make for an excellent pooch name.
